Poured into a tulip glass from a 16.9 oz bottle.
The brew pours a nice straw pale golden color with some mil orange hues on the edges. It is very slightly hazy. There is a nice half inch white head that is dense to medium dense and lively yet recedes quickly.
Aroma is exquisite. Notes of fruity tartness together with some yeast acidic tartness as well. Note of woody barrel notes with some good mild fruit juice sweetness. Notes of unripened peaches and apricots. Nice fruity notes mixed in with funk and some mild earthy undertones.
Wow! This is delicious starts off dry and then some great full bodied rich sweet fruit juice notes creep up. Notes of apricot sweetness and tartness with some mild peach notes as well. There is a nice grainy earthy undertone in the flavor as well that mixes in nicely with the fruit sweet/tart notes. Very effervescent like champagne. Vinous character and notes are perceived in the middle and back end of the brew. The mouthfeel is spicy and with prickly dry carbonation. Light and yummy.
So far one of my favorite Prairie beers. Great notes of fruit, nice yeasty esters some wood and nice earthy grain go together to form a very drinkable, smooth yet flavorful brew.

In a snifter the beer was a yellow gold color, very clear. There was a small white head.
Earthy hop aroma. Fruit, some citrus. Spicy. Great aroma.
Lemon taste, some other fruit that was sweet. Peppery spice. Funky.
Crisp and tart. A fun beer to drink, but then again I'm very partial to Prairie.

A good inch of tightly knit bright white foam. Hazy, light straw to golden colored ale with great carbonation and minimal Brussels lacing. I get pale malt,farmhouse yeast,pears and apricots. The taste is very sweet on the front of the palate with the farmhouse yeast and pale malt,but it seems aggressively tart with apricot finish on the finish. The mouth is moderately carbonated and bone dry.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Thankful to find this 500 mL bottle instead of having to open a 3L.
Appearance - Pale, yellow, and a little hazy. Nice white head. Thick white collar.
Smell - Fruity and acidic smelling. Stone fruit, but not what I'd peg as apricot. Lemony element, too. Pale malt. Some grassy notes.
Taste - Much grainier. More of an emphasis on herbal and grassy flavors. Light lactic tartness. Faint fruitiness, but nothing like the aroma.
Mouthfeel - Medium light. Well carbonated. Minimal tang.
Overall - After I finished writing the review, I decided I liked it a lot. Nitpicking the flavors didn't seem to help my impression of the beer.

Pale gold, streams of carbonation, crackly head of white foam that parts after the first sip or two.
Funky Brett aroma, wet straw and horsehair, grapes, dried fruit.
Tart and fruity taste, juicy though indistinct and not overtly apricot. Brett bleeds through and lingers in the bone dry finish. Ample carb level, light and effervescent feel. Overall a nice Prairie variation, though a tiny bit more apricot would have been nice.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.
Deep and shimering shiny bright lemon yellow body, just glowing. The head is a shocking bright white, with light retention and a thick fluffy puck on top. Lots of rising carbonation. Very pretty looking saison.
Great nose. Good dry funk, wonderful juicy fruit notes hinting of peaches and lemons. Crisp but only semi-arid sensing on the bouquet. Fantastic balance.
Great palate to match with a solid feel. Light juiced body with sharp brett but that balances nicely. Slight malty finish with great fruit qualities. Mellow peaches and fruit finish with a quenching lemon spritzy quality.
Another fun saison from these guys. Very impressed with this breweries offerings.
